Ilija Rudman returns to Ism Record s with his third EP for Yam Who?s label & without doubt his strongest to date. 2 killer hard analogue originals full of his trademark future retro studio sounds & then on the remix controls, everyones man of the moment Hot Toddy from Crazy P & our nu deadly secret weapon, Ourra. DJ Support: Horse Meat Disco, Ashley Beedle, Greg Wilson, Rahaan & Alfos
All tracks stand up on their own. First is Toddy's peaktime remix of 'Future Times' and as expected he turns in another classic, increasing the production with precise musical touches and modern funk magic throughout. A total summer bonanza & already picking up some massive DJ reactions.
Rudman's original mix has a full on 80's direction, heavy on the beats almost like a classic Prince groove & a killer stripped down nu-disco vibe. The second original, 'Dimension's' see the Croatian don again pounding his live bass over deliciously tight dancefloor workout, smoothly increasing the energy & the tension to climax at the perfect moment.
Ourra a recent Ism discovery takes on Ilija's 'Future Times' into boogie wonderland, adding classic NYC synth hooks, electro drums with flourishes of Balearic beauty whilst staying true to the original vibe. [info from pd]
